How Big Of An Impact Does Lamar Jackson Have On Ravens’ Success?

  • Lamar Jackson has betting lines of 3450.5 passing yards and 25.5 passing touchdowns.
  • He is also projected to add 945.5 yards and 7.5 touchdowns in the rushing game.
  • The Baltimore Ravens have +115 odds to win the AFC North and are -300 favorites to make the playoffs.

BALTIMORE – The Baltimore Ravens are a part of one of the more competitive divisions in the NFL. They may need Lamar Jackson to have another MVP-caliber season to see success.

Lamar Jackson’s Individual Odds

Those familiar with betting on the NFL will know that Lamar Jackson has the capabilities of being a game-breaker. The 2019 MVP has run for 1000 yards in each of the past two seasons while combining for 62 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He’s expected to continue improving in the passing game in the 2021-2022 season.

Lamar Jackson Passing Yards Odds

  • Over 3450.5 -115
  • Under 3450.5 -115

Lamar Jackson Passing TDs Odds

  • Over 25.5 -110
  • Under 25.5 -120

Jackson’s previous high in passing yards is 3127 for a season but did so in just 15 games. To reach his passing yards total, he would need to throw for 203 yards per game, assuming he plays in all 17 games.

This is a very obtainable number, even for a QB on a team that runs the ball as much as any other team in the NFL.

Jackson has also recorded 26 or more passing touchdowns in both of his seasons as the full-time starter. Seeing online sportsbooks list his total so low may be a bit surprising. However, the biggest impact Jackson has on the game is often with his legs.

Lamar Jackson Rushing Yards Odds

  • Over 945.5 -115
  • Under 945.5 -115

Lamar Jackson Rushing TDs Odds

  • Over 7.5 +110
  • Under 7.5 -140

As mentioned, Jackson has hit the 1000-yard mark on the ground in each of the past two seasons and with an extra game in 2021, he’s likely to do so again if he is to remain healthy for the season. However, he has never had more than seven rushing touchdowns in a season, leaving his TD total much more in question than his yards totals.

Given his style of play, he’s subject to receiving more hits than the average quarterback. If he were to be injured and miss more than a couple of games, his chances of hitting any of these marks drop significantly.

Baltimore Ravens Team Odds

The Baltimore Ravens have won double-digit games in each of the past three seasons, but the odds favor the Under for the team’s win total for the upcoming season.

Baltimore Ravens 2021/22 Total Wins

  • Over 10.5 -180
  • Under 10.5 +135

A win total of 10.5 wins is respectable, at least enough to be favored to win the AFC North, even if it is only by a small margin.

AFC North Odds

  • Baltimore Ravens +115
  • Cleveland Browns +150
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +400
  • Cincinnati Bengals +2200

AS the AFC North is one of the tougher divisions in the league, there’s a chance the Ravens may need to make the playoffs through the Wild Card, but the sportsbooks feel confident in their ability to do so.

Baltimore Ravens - To Make The Playoffs

  • Yes -300
  • No +220

Jackson will likely need to stay healthy for the team to have a chance at hitting any of these bets, and if he does go north of his individual marks, his team will probably see success in the win column.
